I would like to share my app with you. I can share the app with one person to test the app for me on Moto G. Please send me a PM

The app link on the playstore is https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...er.soslauncher

Description
This is a homescreen replacement that has an Ultra Power Saving Mode for your phone to help you extend battery life when you are running out of charge. This launcher allows up-to 4 apps on the home-screen.

What this app does:
1. Kills all running apps and services.
2. Disables WiFi, Data.
3. Shows Missed Calls and Missed Messages.

Ultra Power Saving Mode:
4. OLED Mode for AMOLED devices.
5. Changes governor to Powersave mode. (requires ROOT Access)
6. Disables 2 cores of a Quad core phone. (requires ROOT Access)
7. Reboot during exit. (requires ROOT Access)

When your phone goes below 15% battery, the app shows alert to clear the defaults for your current launcher. After clearing, set SOS Launcher as the default homescreen, and the app would take care of the battery. Once you quit the app, it would clear itself as the default launcher and you can start using your favorite launcher back.

Sounds like a Novel Idea. I definitely see some great Potential here. FWIW, Launchers with small footprint would be a great place to save Battery. This is why even today [APP] Zeam Launcher has lots of takers. Perhaps you can take that code as your baseline since the project is closed.

Two points I see as potential issues.
  1. You can't Kill all the apps to save Battery. This is not Windoz and it doesn't work that way. You will chew up more battery as the apps initiate a new session. There are way too many discussions around XDA on Task Killers. Suffice it to say that OOM RE-Prioritization is a better way.
  2. Shutting down core and changing Governors is a splendid idea. But that would actually assume the kernel in question actually supports that governor and has HotPlugging enabled ? On that note, Frequency throttling might be an idea.
